Activists Want ‘Constitutional Carry’

The House State Affairs Committee introduced a bill Thursday that would allow concealed constitutional carry in the state of Idaho, meaning law-abiding citizens would be permitted to carry a gun without a concealed carry permit and without formal training. The bill was presented by Greg Pruett, president of the Idaho Second Amendment Alliance. He told the committee five other states have constitutional carry — Vermont, Alaska, Arizona, Wyoming and Arkansas. Pruett said his organization has conducted extensive research on those states and talked to their law enforcement and elected officials about how it has worked for them. However, when Rep. Paulette Jordan, D-Plummer, asked if she could receive comments from Idaho law enforcement officials, Pruett said he has not approached the Idaho Sheriff's Association as a whole/Idaho Press-Tribune.

Question: Do you support concealed Constitutional carry?
